5:30 pm
>> good evening, from our nation's capital tonight. we are here this evening as the nation prepares to witness the moment that comes once every four years, the presidential inauguration. the constitution requires the inauguration to be held on january 20th, but because the day is sunday, the nation will see it play out tomorrow just behind me at the capital. quietly today, chief justice john roberts administering the oath of office in a private ceremony. the first lady holding her grandmother's bible. their daughters by their sides. all around washington tonight, there's a growing buzz in the air as they get ready. the u.s. marine band rehearsing on the capital steps a short time ago and where the president will deliver his inaugural address tomorrow. authorities are expecting 800,000 people to gather here, a massive number for a president ushering in a second term. we have our team across washington tonight.
5:31 pm
we begin with the quiet ceremony at the white house and our chief white house correspondent, jonathan karl. >> reporter: it was short and sweet. just 42 words. >> so help me god. >> reporter: with that, the seconds term begins. last time around chief justice roberts flubbed the words. >> execute the office -- >> reporter: this time he took notes. tomorrow, president obama will tie a record, taking the oath for the fourth time. there was a flubbed one four years ago, a redo the next day. today's official oath required by the constitution to be done before noon on january 20th and the ceremonial one tomorrow before his inaugural speech. as many oaths since fdr, he was elected four times. the challenge for president obama this time is to recapture the energy and enthusiasm of four years ago when a record 1.8 million people descended on washington to witness the history-making swearing-in of the nation's first african american president. nobody expects a crowd that big again.
5:32 pm
this time, the president will have his hand on two bibles. abraham lincoln's and martin luther king's. in a video released by the white house, the president explained why. >> letting them know there's a connection between me being here and the sacrifices of those in the past, which i think is entirely fitting. >> the man who ran obama's re-election campaign says the president will use his big speech tomorrow, in part, to reach out to some of those who voted against him. >> you'll see a president who wants to work across party lines to get things done. i think that's what the country wants. >> reporter: after today's oath was complete, the president's 11-year-old daughter was happy to see dad got the words right. >> i did it. >> you didn't mess up. >> we got a kick out of that today, the chief justice bringing notes to the white house. >> not going to mess up this time. >> the president made history here four years ago. a lot at stake. what does he have to accomplish tomorrow? >> this is a chance to set the tone. it's not a policy speech.
5:33 pm
you're not going to be hearing about what policies he'll pursue. but this is a huge audience, maybe the second biggest audience of his presidency. he wants to set a tone and to reach out to some of those who voted against him. >> the other big issue is security. they put up cell towers, so people with their ipads and iphones don't crash the communication system. cecilia vega takes us inside the command center and along the route the president will take. >> reporter: they will be everywhere. snipers dotting rooftops, the coast guard patrolling waterways. military fighter jets enforcing a no-fly zone. 13,000 security personnel blanketing the washington mall on monday. >> protecting an event this large, complex, with this many different venues, with this many people coming, requires a lot of coordination and a lot of organization. >> reporter: all coordinating here. the multi-agency communication center overseen by the secret service at an undisclosed location. they'll monitor surveillance images and potential threats.
5:34 pm
the fbi says there are currently no credible threats for monday. the 2009 inauguration was a logistical nightmare. hundreds of ticket holders getting stuck in a tunnel. authorities say this time will be better. >> it's always such a different feel when you come down for the inauguration. there's extensive signage, there are way finders. we have social media sites that you can follow. >> this year there's an app for that. it picks up where you are, tells you where the viewing screens are and the nearby events, telling me, i'm right on the parade route. along that 1.2 mile stretch of pennsylvania avenue, from the capital steps to the white house, undercover officers and s.w.a.t. teams out in full force. >> cecilia is with us now. you were telling me, they're expecting a crowd larger than the second inaugurals for presidents clinton and bush tomorrow. >> you say about 800,000 or so people. we crunched the numbers. one officer for every 61 people present. so a lot of law enforcement on the streets.
5:35 pm
the president will be watching from behind a bullet-proof glass viewing area. big question. will he get out and walk with the crowd? we saw him do it three times in 2009. the white house isn't saying officially whether he'll be out, but i bet he will. >> we'll be watching. i can see you fixing your hair. there's wind now. it was a glorious day here in washington. sunny and warm. but look at what's happened before here in the capital. you'll remember in previous years, during the reagan administration, his second inaugural was a lot worse. so cold they had to go inside. snow filling the stands. in 1937, it was the wettest january on record. fdr decided if the crowd could handle the elements, so could he. he rode through the streets in an open car. just before we came on the air, we checked the forecast. they're expecting 30s, chilly, but not bad. we're grateful for that. rain or shine the abc news team will be here throughout the day with live coverage starting with "good morning america" and continuing throughout the day.
5:36 pm
the entire team along the parade route. we'll see you tomorrow. in the meantime, we continue on the note about weather and bitter cold freezing a big stretch of the country tonight. blowing arctic winds along with it and clayton sandell is tracking the front for us. >> reporter: a weekend weather mess across the plains and midwest. >> this year definitely the worst i've seen. >> reporter: around fargo, north dakota, roads were barely drivable. sub-zero blizzards bringing 50-mile-an-hour winds. >> got the white-knuckle grip trying to hold it on the road. >> reporter: across the detroit area, those winds knocked out power to about 200,000 customers. in utah, icy roads turned highways deadly. garrett barker and kel halterman were in a pickup that careened over a guard rail in salt lake city, crashing 30 feet below. the young couple, their unborn baby and four dogs were killed. by monday much of the northeast
5:37 pm
can expect snow and cold. the upper midwest is already in a deep freeze. a minus-14 windchill in wisconsin today. cold enough to turn boiling water into freezing mist. and as for those bitter cold temperatures that gripped much of the west last week, they've moved on. in denver today, a balmy 46 degrees. david? >> clayton, our thanks to you. we're going to turn overseas now to the aftermath of that terror attack in north africa. today bomb squads making sure the facility is now safe. but they also made a grim discovery. dozens more bodies. the death toll now at 81. as we hear from those who survived, word of a chilling message from the man who claimed to have planned it all. here's abc's brian ross. >> reporter: as the bodies of more hostages were being discovered inside the saharan desert facility today, many badly burned or maimed, the absolute horror of their
5:38 pm
experience became clear. in recordings of phone calls made by one hostage in broken english to authorities outside as broadcast on algerian tv. >> we have prisoners. we have hostages with bombs on the body. please call back, please call back. >> reporter: an al qaeda commander followed up with this in arabic. we will kill the american hostages here. we will slaughter them. we will not kill them. we will slaughter them. survivors said one captor spoke excellent english and may have been from canada and that many terrorists were dressed as security guards. making the decision to run for it difficult. >> when you don't know what's out there, and we know that the terrorists seem the same as the security forces, it was a huge decision, do you stay or do you go? >> reporter: the rogue al qaeda leader, mokhtar belmokhtar, has now taken credit for the attack according to an african website today.
5:39 pm
we and al qaeda announced this blessed operation, he was reported to have said. the chairman of the house intelligence committee told abc news, the u.s. knew the al qaeda group was looking for a western target in the area. >> we didn't know for sure it would be this place under those circumstances, but we knew they were trying to find and complete a target against a western target which this clearly was. >> of the ten americans at the plant, seven escaped or were freed. one is confirmed dead. still no word, but growing concern about the fate of two others who were believed to be inside during the final assault, david, by the algerian army. >> brian, thank you. turning now to a troubling headline out of new mexico tonight. a terrible shooting incident. police say a teenage boy about 15 years old, facing murder charges for the deaths of a man, woman, and three children at a rural home near albuquerque. investigators say several weapons were found at the scene, including an assault-type rifle and that the victims were all
5:40 pm
shot multiple times. just a day after thousands of gun owners rallied in state capitals across this country. the campaign was organized to push back against the drive by president obama to reign in gun violence in this country. david kerley is at the white house tonight. >> reporter: a scramble at a gun show. dozens run in raleigh, after a shot gun is accidentally fired. three people hit. in two other states, two other accidental shootings at gun shows with two more injured. but it wasn't chaotic everywhere. >> hey, we finally made it in! >> reporter: calling it "guns across america," supporters turned out at rallies and gun shows, opposing the president's plan. >> tell americans they can't have something, they're going to go out and get it. >> reporter: gun control was not on the president's second-term agenda until what he called, the worst day of his presidency when he was told about the massacre at sandy hook elementary. he now mentions this effort nearly daily. >> to protect our children and protect them from the horrors of gun violence.
5:41 pm
>> protecting our children from harm. >> reporter: the public is behind the president on some of his proposals. gun show background checks, an owner database, banning high-capacity magazine clips. but a ban on assault weapons appears unlikely as republicans push back. >> this is not designed to solve the problem of violent crime. this is designed to assuage liberal partisans -- >> reporter: and it's not just republicans. the white house admits not all democrats are on board. >> i do think things have changed since newtown. we're going to twist the arms of democrats, republicans and engage the american people in this debate. >> reporter: supporters both inside and outside the white house are said to be planning a 50-state strategy to try to get some of these measures through congress. david? >> david kerley tonight across town at the white house, thank you. we have a sports note tonight about the man known simply as stan the man. tonight baseball fans are mourning the loss of stan musial. he helped the st. louis cardinals win three world series titles in the 1940s.
